ENGL 202: Major English Writers II

Dr. Rick Albright

In this course, we will read British literature from about 1790 to 1945, examining literary works from the Romantic, Victorian, and twentieth-century periods in an historical and cultural context, and delving into some of the significant issues and debates that characterize and inform the literature and art of these periods. Although we will move quickly through a large number of authors and texts, the strategies and skills of close reading, analysis, and interpretation that we will focus on in this course will prepare you for more intensive study of English literature.

These audio podcasts have been produced to reinforce and supplement the course’s instructor notes, promote class discussion, and facilitate a deeper understanding of the course’s texts.

If you have any feedback, please send email to the instructor at: rsalbrig@hacc.edu.
